    Any chance of a Friends-style "The one where..." description for those?

    You mean you don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of every episode? For shame! :p

    Anyway..

    Afternoon Delight - Gob's $3000 suit + office party.

    Good Grief - When they think George Snr. is dead and hold a wake for him, and George Michael has Pop-pop in the attic.

    Missing Kitty - First Spring Break episode where Gob sinks the yacht.

    Immaculate Election - George Michael runs for student body president, with the help of Gob.

    Best Man for the Gob - Gob and George Snr. organise a bachelor party and try to trick Gilligan in to thinking he killed a stripper so he'll flee the country.

    Spot the theme!

    Best Man for the Gob has my favourite line from the whole show.

    Lindsay: I'm tired of trying to find happiness through lies and self-medicating. If you need me, I'll be at the bar.

    Watched the Franklin episode tonight. Tears of laughter. When Mrs Featherbottom falls through the table I swear a bit of wee came out.

    Is anyone else getting a bit bored with remastered games? Read my thoughts!

    Best Man for the GOB is indeed a great one.

    "I'm a failure. I can't even fake the death of a stripper"

    Meet The Veals would be near the top of any best episode list IMO. It has everything from chloroform Franklin to Mrs Featherbottom and the scenes with Michael and Anne's parents are great.

    My favourite line is in that episode.

    Lindsay (looking at George Snr.'s dental records): That's definitely his smile, he always used to swear by that Glisten. I can just him now. "Who left the cap off my f**king Glisten!"

    Think I already posted that line in this thread, but it's a great line so I don't care!

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    When George Michael is examining George's teeth, Saddam-style. :D

    "Years of brushing with Glisten"

    Love it.

    "Gillgan said this money will go into these IRAs"
    "Sir it's Ira"
    "Sorry, Gilligan. Into these iras..."

    Yeah, it's probably my favourite. So consistant all the way through.

    "Dad! Please! I told you, the window doesn't go all the way up! The radio doesn't work either!!"

    Meet The Veals for me as well.

    The jokes about how Ann's mother is hot are brilliant.

    When Michael tells that guy from Firefly that 'you've got to lock that down'

    Then there is;

    Lucille 'Are you sure this is not her sister?'
    Michael 'What a horrible thing to say' - same time as Ann's mum ''What a lovely thing to say'

    It also has the 'we just call it a sausage' line.

    Been watching this on Saturday mornings on FX.

    This maybe the best sitcom ever made.

    Arrested Development to return on Netflix in 2013. Film not guaranteed.

    Hate to say it, but British comedy is left cold by the likes of this. This old fashioned shit, getting a couple or one writer to write a comedy. Why not do as the Americans do, and get a writing team and see what that provides. You'll end up with the British version of this awesomeness.

    Many of our sitcoms are like stage plays.

    Bob Loblaw is possibly the finest character name in TV history.

    The way David Cross says: "Bob Loblaw's Law Blog" is amazingly good.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    @ecureuil

    christ... that may actually have blown my mind. Every time I think I've finally seen every joke in Arrested Development in the four years since I started watching it, something pops up to remind me just how wrong I am.

    All 3 series on DVD for £16.99 on Play - not sure how long the deal lasts for.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    (another forum) Title: Arrested Development is overrated!


    A lot of my friends love the show and had me watch it with them and I'm almost done with the second season and I don't just get it. I've yet to have any "lol" moments or even crack a smile. Most of the characters aren't even remotely realistic or just too stupid. I can't believe everyone likes this crap.

    Anyone else agree?
    Er, no.

    This scene is right before Buster goes out into the ocean to lose his limb to a seal.





    A dog called Snoopy:



    Michaelís doctor: "Once I got in there, the appendix wasnít so inflamed. Díoh." Michaelís doctor is played by Dan Castellaneta :D



    Police drug dog sniffing Busters Hook. At the start of the episode Uncle Oscar had been smoking weed with the hook.

    I have been watching "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" (David Cross (Tobias) vehicle set in UK, Will Arnett also in it, lots of swearing) on 4OD on my XBOX. It's painfully funny. Perhaps too painful.
